There are no limits per person, but each title can be checked out a limited amount of time per month. Titles can be accessed for 30 days before the system returns it. This is the same app that grants library card holders access to digital magazines.

Mauro Magarelli, Mount Olive Public Library Director, commented: “This is every comic book lover’s dream! Nearly 100 titles available for free and you don’t have to worry about ruining your collectible copies because it’s all digital!”

Comic books have re-entered pop culture of late and have become increasingly popular for all age groups. Demand for comics has been reinvigorated by movies such as Avengers: Infinity War, Black Panther, and Thor:Ragnarok.

Comic book movies have created a new period of fandom. Now with a MAIN library card anyone can access comic books to read favorite characters like Captain America, Spider-Man, and Thor.

Recorded Books is the largest independent producer of audiobooks in the world. RBdigital’s platform distributes the broadest array of digital content types – including audiobooks, videos, magazines, eBooks, educational materials, and entertainment – all in one powerful app.
